Figaro Castle.
"It doesn't look like it, but this castle incorporates some of the most high-tech devices in existence. For example, ... Oops... they're all top-secret!"
—Figaro guard
Figaro's Chancellor

Figaro Castle (フィガロ Figaro) is a castle in Final Fantasy VI. It is located in the middle of a desert, and is ruled by Edgar Roni Figaro. Since it's in the middle of the desert, people consider it dangerous to travel to Figaro on foot. Chocobos are the preferred means of travel to the castle, and many of the guards patrol the area on Chocobos. Its population is about 2,500 people and its area is 1,900 square meters. It is considered to be the most modern structure in the world, and contains many highly advanced technological and mechanical devices that only Edgar knows about, including a device that transforms it into a drill that can burrow underground in an emergency. This device also allows the castle to travel in between South Figaro and Kohlingen. The castle's primary economy is the production of machines, and all goods made in the castle are shipped to South Figaro. In Figaro, it is a rite of passage for the nobility (distinguished by their blue eyes) to participate in the "hunting of an Antlion" when one turns fourteen.

Events prior to Final Fantasy VI

The castle was built more than 200 years before the events of Final Fantasy VI. It was not equipped with machines until about eighty-four years before the adventure, with the first attempt to submerge the castle occurring ten years later. The submerging was a tragic failure and hundreds of citizens were killed. Engineers from around the world were then hired to review the work. The second attempt was made, sixty-eight years before the events of the game, and was completed successfully.

Edgar once ruled the castle with his brother Sabin. However, when their father died, Sabin thought that the Empire was responsible for the death of their father, and decided that he did not want to become king. Edgar and Sabin made a deal that they would have a coin toss, where the winner would walk the path of his own choosing with no regrets or protest from the loser. Edgar used a two-headed coin to make sure Sabin won; thus, Sabin left while Edgar became king.

Edgar had the kingdom of Figaro aligned with the Empire officially, but he only did so in order to secretly fund money and resources to the Returners, an organization opposed to the Empire. Locke Cole was to be the go-between. One day, however, Locke brought a young girl named Terra to the castle, and told Edgar that he needed to harbor her from the Empire. However, Kefka Palazzo wanted to bring Terra back to the Empire, and he came to Figaro to find out where she was. Edgar lied and said she was not around, but Kefka set the castle on fire as a result. Edgar ordered his Chancellor to bury the castle under the ground while he escaped with Terra and Locke.

The Returners came back to the castle later to use it to travel to Kohlingen. It was Sabin's first time back at the Castle after he left it, so he took a little walk around his home.

The apocalypse shook the castle, forcing it underground. Edgar decided that he needed to bring it back above the surface. To do this, he needed to travel around and find a group of thieves who knew a secret passage into the castle. He found them in the Crimson Robbers, and secretly joined them as a man named Gerad with promises of vast treasure in Figaro. He let the thieves lead him into the castle and down to the basement where the source of the problem was. A large monster was blocking the engine, and Edgar fought it with a little help from Sabin and Celes. The castle could then be used once again as a means of travel between South Figaro and Kohlingen.

After the party acquires the Falcon, they can return to Figaro Castle and travel in it again. This time, however, the castle is obstructed by something, which turns out to be the Ancient Castle. The party can explore there. Oddly, Kefka never uses the Light of Judgment on the castle when it resurfaces, despite having many reasons to do so.

Trouble with the audio sample?

"Edgar & Sabin" is the background theme that plays at the Figaro Castle, while "The Returners" plays briefly during the infiltration of Gerad's gang into the castle.
